An eight-year-old boy who recently made the headlines for donating proceeds from his book sales to charity, has now earned a place in the Malaysia Book of Records (MBOR).

Krissh Haran Nair, from Johor, earned a spot for "highest amount contributed to a foundation through book sales as a child", reported Bernama.

Last month, Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar had feted Krissh's contribution of raising RM7,000 for the Sultan Ibrahim Johor Foundation (YSIJ), raised from the sales of Krissh's self-written 14-page book called "The Mysterious War in the Deep."

The raised funds were then used to purchase necessities for the needy.

Sultan Ibrahim further called Krissh as an inspiration to others, due to his charitable act despite his young age.

Speaking to reporters after receiving the MBOR certificate at his school yesterday, Krissh said that he is now in the midst of writing his next book titled "Pillar and the Golden Sword", the proceeds of which he plans to donate to children who gave lost their parents to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Krissh's mother R. Jayanthi, 41, said that she was proud of her son's achievement, and thanked MBOR for the recognition.

Kudos to Krissh for the laudable achievement, and the parents too, for raising such a smart, and civic-minded child.
